Tweets of the Week

As Sorana Cirstea warned us, the tweets would be hard to come by this week because so many players are in China, where Twitter is blocked. But this week did include Andy Murray's triumphant return to Twitter after a four-month absence, Andy Roddick's boy-band musings and more.

Tweet of the Week

Kleybanova update: Italian tennis writer Angelica Fratini gives a welcome update on Alisa Kleybanova. The Russian was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma last year and returned to the WTA Tour in March in Miami, where she won in her first-round match. She hasn't played since then but it sounds like she's doing well.
